00:00:04--> 00:00:37

Hi, I'm Linda Mohamad who want to stay in 10102 billahi min sharone unforseen our CR tr Marina Mija De La Villa de La MaMa usually Fela ha de la, la la la la, la la la la sharika lahu unknown calahonda Mohammedan Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam. So today's Hadith inshallah for tonight the eighth Hadith in the series will deal and will continue to deal with the topic of dunya the world

00:00:38--> 00:00:43

and the attraction that we have for it and the consequences of this attraction.

00:00:44--> 00:01:03

So here in what Nomad generated, it is said that, by the way, is that all we hear is hora, Jolene or pseudo la he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 100 Guru fucker on it. Whoa, whoa, whoa. So the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes out and there were a group of the Sahaba sitting.

00:01:05--> 00:01:10

And they're saying that we were discussing poverty

00:01:11--> 00:01:14

and afraid of it, expressing fears about it.

00:01:15--> 00:01:37

So far, so the prophets already sent him replied. He said Kahala and socrata harpoon alpha protocol phone Are you afraid of poverty? Is this what you fear? What are the enough CBA I swear by the one who has my soul in his hand, that is Allah subhanaw taala not the sub lattice of bene la comunidad

00:01:38--> 00:01:49

de la UZ la hora de comida Illa here, he says, I swear by Allah subhana wa tada The world will be poured upon you

00:01:50--> 00:01:53

that it will be will be given so much of it

00:01:54--> 00:01:59

that the thing that is going to misguide you

00:02:00--> 00:02:09

will be it and nothing else. But then he says, Why am Allahu Allah to come? By your door, he

00:02:11--> 00:02:18

says, I swear by Allah subhana wa Taala, I left you on the likeness of the white path.

00:02:19--> 00:02:25

The night and the day of that path are alike there are no different meaning it is very clear.

00:02:26--> 00:02:27

Right?

00:02:28--> 00:02:31

So this is the Hadith insha Allah for tonight.

00:02:32--> 00:02:59

Now, as we said, the last Hadith we saw, the intensity, right of the love, the shotgun, the intensity of the love that we have for the dunya that even when we progress in age, that love doesn't subside and actually increases. So we saw or we are going to see inshallah, in more detail the effect of that low of the dunya that can have on our hearts. First we'll talk about that poverty that the

00:03:00--> 00:03:03

companions of the Prophet sallallahu send them more worried about.

00:03:04--> 00:03:09

And that is, by the way, a natural feeling that humans have

00:03:10--> 00:03:20

to be afraid of the future and to be afraid of poverty, not having enough. Whether it is now, like I don't have enough now.

00:03:23--> 00:03:39

No, I'm reading I just explained it to them before we started, it's the 11th in the book that you have, so my sequences are gonna be different. So I may do that sometimes in my life, I noticed that it'd be more appropriate to shift the order of the headings, I will do that. So you will find it in the 11th.

00:03:40--> 00:03:52

Okay, so it's very natural to be afraid of poverty, whether it is happening right now, or what will happen in the future will I be able to find enough or not.

00:03:54--> 00:04:36

And the shaytaan recognizes our weakness. So we've been repeating this and saying it but inshallah, we're not going to get tired of saying that the shaytan knows and wants to know your weakness. And when the shaytan knows your weakness, he attacks you from that angle, whatever your weakness may be. Some of us have peculiar weaknesses to us. By some of us, it's money. Some of us it's women, some of us is position, your weakest when it comes to one of these things or more. But here this poverty seems to be common, because you don't want to be in need. And you don't want to have that need unfulfilled. So this is something that terrifies many or all of us so that shaytan knows this. So he

00:04:36--> 00:04:40

will attack from that angle. And shavon

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

shavon promises you and threatens you with poverty, that is to move you in the direction that the shaytan wants to move you to he will use certain tactics and one of the common ones that he will use and you will have to identify the common tactics of the shapefile

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

Because these keep repeating, doesn't only happen with you happens with everybody and doesn't only happen with this generation with every generation, it's not like having a rulebook and imagines how to live in the shale clean. I don't know if they do that or not. They have like a rulebook, right and every shaytan has to be initiated and misguiding people to come and study, and they sit and study, you say that the ancient humans are afraid of this. So you know, already or he knows already, I have to attack them through through this. So one of them is that a shaytani R. He threatens you with poverty.

00:05:36--> 00:06:15

And from that he can enter your heart and when he enters your heart, he'll be able to tell you things about yourself and things that are a lot to convince you that something is wrong. That is Allah Subhana Allah, Allah is not going to provide for you. There is no guarantee. You have to fend for yourself, you have to take care of yourself. If you are suffering from poverty, he will come and tell you if there is need, they will come and tell you, you deserve more. You know, your love in life is not what you really deserve. You're smarter and better and more talented, other people get some things that you don't get. So you're actually are shortchanged, and Allah is shortchanging you,

00:06:15--> 00:06:30

right? Allah owes you something, and he's not giving that to you. So he will try to shake our trust in Allah subhana wa, Allah and in our wisdom of Allah, that whatever has given us, he has given us for a reason, and that he will continue to provide

00:06:32--> 00:06:43

Russia he commands you to commit in decency, especially when you want to get that money. That is if you are, if you panic about wealth, or about anything else, the shaytaan, you know, would ask you to panic about,

00:06:44--> 00:07:18

then he will try to steer you in a specific direction. Now you have to violate Allah commands and allies rule, that's the only way for you to be able to get money. Otherwise, there is no security for you. So for some people, it convinces them that you have to steal you have to like you have to cheat. That's the only way then be able to survive. And that's a common tactic of the shaytaan. And we've mentioned that Hadith before, I'm not going to mention it again, but in any shape on a limb Mattoon limit and give me Adam Olin mela killam writes on malama to shaytani, they are going to be sharing with agreement will have the the shaytan has an influence on your heart has a connection to

00:07:18--> 00:07:56

it. And that connection and influence is the Adam Bishop promises you that evil is the only thing that lies ahead. Right evil is the only thing that you will be your fortune if you keep holding on to Islam, or listening to Allah will always be behind you're always be lacking somehow. What's the one bill? How can all see you to question the truth that Allah subhana wa Taala reveals. And when that happens, again, with every plot of the shape on you have to recognize its source, or is coming from the shape line is not necessarily something that is innate in you, this is coming from the shape on. So recognize the source and then separate yourself from the source. That's what you want

00:07:56--> 00:08:33

to do. If you see something you know, that is going to electrocute you, the first thing that you want to do is move away from it. So the same thing that you want to do. When you notice that that is from the shapefile not only will it mean the shape on the rhodium row, the diamond shape on the rhodium so that the whispers of the JSON will start to identify it, then the influence of the shape on diminishes. A lot of times what happens that we don't recognize it as an influence of the shape on so we keep indulging that thought, Oh yeah, that might be true or what would happen. So yes, yes, yes, yes, then the influence gets bigger and bigger. So you have to stop, extend that flow and

00:08:33--> 00:08:45

immediately say, Oh, do we let him in a shape on the road. And also remind yourself that Allah Subhana what Allah has guaranteed provisions and sustenance. And he already has this destined that.

00:08:46--> 00:08:51

Right Allah Subhana Allah says woman in depth but in fill out of the Illa Allah here is

00:08:52--> 00:09:04

there is no creature on the face of this earth, right that walks on the face of this earth, humans, animals, whatever it is, except that its provisions are guaranteed by Allah, Allah is the one who provides it.

00:09:05--> 00:09:16

Of course, you have to work to earn it. But our job, our effort, right, is just the key that unlocks the provisions that come to us.

00:09:17--> 00:09:59

Otherwise, the provision is coming to you from Allah subhana wa Tada. It's not your effort that is guaranteeing those provisions guaranteeing that is just unlocks it. Right, you know how you open a door and then you open and you go inside a room and then you find everything there. So it says it's like that Allah subhanaw taala is telling you the effort, and I will provide for you and don't trust your effort. You know, how what would make you not trust your effort is observing that there are many intelligent and talented people on the face of this earth who are not lucky when it comes to provisions. They're not rich, smart people. Right? And they are very foolish people.

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

All very rich and successful.

00:10:04--> 00:10:18

And so you know that it's not just you know, your mental your physical your or your talents, or the thing that I'm going to bring you this sort of, you have to believe also that there's a important factor which is Allah subhana wa Taala. He's the one who provides.

00:10:19--> 00:10:22

Now, the

00:10:23--> 00:10:37

poverty that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam were expressing, and we're afraid of right, is something that we probably, you know, maybe accept, very few of us have not seen or experienced ourselves.

00:10:38--> 00:10:47

Like to be worried about your dinner. And whether you have enough or not to be worried about your lunch tomorrow. And whether you're going to have enough or not,

00:10:49--> 00:11:06

not having enough clothes, just you know, one garment that you keep wearing all the time, right, are living in a very, very modest place, you know, being built from mud or not even having a home. So that is the level of poverty that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam were worried about.

00:11:08--> 00:11:21

And some Muslims and some people in the world today do experience something similar to this, but most of us, we can only read about this right? We can only maybe see it on TV. But despite that, this level of hardship.

00:11:23--> 00:11:25

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam comes out and he says,

00:11:27--> 00:11:29

it's not poverty that I worry about.

00:11:31--> 00:12:10

And poverty can be a fitna, right. So before that the prophets of Allah, Allah had sought refuge from alpha or alpha, from the evil of the fitna of poverty, lacking these essential needs can be a fitna, right. I don't have enough, where is it? Why don't I even have that could be a fitna, you find your children, right asking for general essentials, and you can't provide it your wife asking for essentials, you can't provide it, that that can be a sickness, that's hard. That's a test. With all of that the prophets have a lot of sentences. That's not what I worry about.

00:12:12--> 00:12:14

What I worry about is when you're going to have money,

00:12:15--> 00:12:19

that's your that's the real test. That's the real hardship right.

00:12:22--> 00:12:28

Because he told them, so the lower you sell them as for your poverty, that is going to end

00:12:30--> 00:12:36

there is going to end and his predictions a lot of them came through. It ended

00:12:37--> 00:12:39

in another Hadith,

00:12:40--> 00:13:22

he tells them as socrata Hakuna, i will i was i will i was under Mako dounia for in a lot of 30 130. So a room or to Samba de como dunya sabaneta luzira combat in as in the here similar to this Howdy, which of those and specifically what is going to happen, he said that the land of project and present to me are going to be open for you. And you're going to get money from there, and then the world is going to open itself for you and will be poured over you. So that to the extent that anything will misguide you after me, it will be the dounia and nothing else. So he was saying that, as far as poverty is concerned, I don't worry about it so much because it's not going to misguide

00:13:22--> 00:13:34

you, but I worry about for you or for people who will come after is that when you become rich, that being rich is going to misguide you, and will be the only cause that you will leave the truth for

00:13:38--> 00:13:42

and in another Hadith, he tells them

00:13:43--> 00:13:56

again, another prediction and it comes true, he says, and Toyama Hey, are you better today or I'm either hoody Allah Heidi combi Jaffna, Tiedemann hobsonville. Already, Holly, give you

00:13:57--> 00:13:58

a few

00:13:59--> 00:14:03

seconds to recover. He says, Are you better today

00:14:04--> 00:14:09

or a time in the future we're in the morning you're going to be brought a plate of meat and bread.

00:14:10--> 00:14:41

And in the afternoon, afternoon, another plate with meat and bread. And in the morning, we're going to wear a suit. And in the afternoon, you will wear another suit and you will drape your houses like the cabinet has been great. Are you better now? Or are you better than when this is going to happen? So again, what was the response of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and it's their response that resonates with us too. They say value laden will be better than Natasha rahula a beggar.

00:14:43--> 00:14:47

He says we will be better than because we will have time to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:48--> 00:14:52

I because they have to work right when you're poor, you have to go and you have to earn you have.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

But he said no and we have enough like that. He says we will be better than because we'll have more and more time for worship. He

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

As Antonio mohite, you're better today, not at that time.

00:15:05--> 00:15:15

You're better today, not at that time. And this tells you about the influence of owning something and when it does to our hearts, right?

00:15:16--> 00:15:53

The more that you get from the dunya, and I'm not, we're not saying I want to emphasize I'm not saying that owning anything we're doing is haha. You know, being excessive, yeah can take you to the level of harm, right, loving it more or less agenda can be a level of harm, but we're talking about what it can do to you and where it can lead us. So the more that you take of the dunya, beyond your needs, the more that you take, the more that she will get to love it. Right, because it's very attractive. So the more that you associate, the more that you bring it into your life into your heart, the more that you will grow in affection for the dunya. And the more that you will love it,

00:15:53--> 00:15:55

the more that you will want to have more of it.

00:15:56--> 00:16:01

And when you want to have more of it and you love it, it will put demands on you

00:16:02--> 00:16:26

a bit to put demands on your time, you have to take care of me by surprise something new, you have to polish it and take care of it. You buy a company you buy a piece of land you buy a house, do you have to furnish it by anything that you get is connected to something else, you buy a house, you have to furnish it, you have to furnish it, you have to take care of it. And now there's maintenance and now there's this Another is that sucks your time.

00:16:27--> 00:16:53

So, you will actually have less time eventually you will have less time than more time. No more than you have the junior less time you have a company the company is small, a few hours a day company becomes big, more employees more responsibilities, you want to expand this this this again not saying that it is haram. I'm saying the price there is a price. So a person is able to take from the dunya and not have it influenced his heart

00:16:54--> 00:17:11

and his heart can remain the same whether he has the dounia or not, then yes. But if the person is unable, like a lot of us is unable to do so then you have to be careful about how much do you take away and what happens to your heart when we take it that is very attractive.

00:17:12--> 00:17:28

So that dunya can alter your heart puts more demand on your time as we said, so less of your time can be spent in worship, and less of our time can be spent being thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So a distance develops between you and Allah.

00:17:29--> 00:17:29

Right.

00:17:30--> 00:17:33

And the hearts difference becomes hard.

00:17:35--> 00:17:37

In addition to everything that it brings with it,

00:17:38--> 00:17:59

like what arrogance, right? When I have something I'll see that I possess what others don't. And again, the shaytaan knows, okay, now you can tell this person that he's better than other people. Now you can convince them arrogance is right there in the heart, then now you can convince him that he's better. No one should talk to him like this. He should dress better, right? He should

00:18:01--> 00:18:13

own something better bet your house bigger this bigger that. So arrogance, right develops in the heart envy, right, because that's the love of the dounia like jealousy, competition, hatred, all of that develops in the heart.

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

So

00:18:17--> 00:18:46

this is why we also see that the profits are the low are you sending them says in the following headings in the liquidity omitting fitna will fit in at all Mateen man says every man has a fitna right a source of temptation that takes them away from Allah subhana wa Tada. We explained before what fitna means right, this is a very important concept to remember is the thing that takes you away from Allah tested. So every oma has a fitna and the fitna of my oma is money.

00:18:48--> 00:19:03

That's the main fitna that the Prophet sallallahu cinnaminson, identified as the main fitness of the Mohammed Salah law, he was similar. It doesn't mean that there is no other fitna. There are other Fitton as well. But he's saying he identified this as the main one.

00:19:04--> 00:19:29

The main one that can lead to other types of fitna, because when you have money, what happens when you have money, you have access. Now, I can open doors have other types of things for us, when we have money. We're not I can't spend money on how long things I don't have money. Right? But when you have money, you can actually open doors and you can spend money on that. Right. So that's a piece of the law you send them

00:19:31--> 00:19:32

identified as the source.

00:19:34--> 00:19:45

And just to see also one, some or one of the other burdens or consequence of also having especially having what we do not need is

00:19:46--> 00:19:55

the reward that Allah Subhana metallic gives to those who are in need or who are poor. He sets a lot he will send them

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

for two extra and he had forgotten

00:20:02--> 00:20:08

He said, I've looked into paradise. And I found that most of its inhabitants are poor.

00:20:10--> 00:20:17

Right? The most of the inhabitants of Paradise when the profits of the law you send them look for the poor.

00:20:18--> 00:20:22

And why is that the case? Right? If you think about it in the forum,

00:20:23--> 00:20:29

right and in the center, who are the people who were the followers of the prophets of Allah?

00:20:31--> 00:20:35

Were they the rich, at least initially? Were they the rich? No.

00:20:36--> 00:20:45

It was the poor and underprivileged. Right? The minorities and the marginalize those are the people or the followers of the prophets of Allah.

00:20:46--> 00:21:24

Who are the people who stood in opposition to the prophets of Allah. You think of Pharaoh Cottenham, and we'll get there. All right, people who are strong, powerful, rich and elite of their society. And this is by it's not an accident that this happens and keeps happening over and over and over the last panel data is showing you one of the effects of having too much money because it brings with it too much power, too much arrogance. And then when the truth comes to you, it decided I'm not going to follow it. Especially or I'm not going to follow a religion that equates me with these four people.

00:21:26--> 00:22:04

As they said to the prophets of Allah, he was saying we want to sit with you, but just dismiss these four people are always sitting around you dismiss them, just you know get granted as a specific time for us. On the last panel with Allah commanded His prophets of the law, he was not to do that. Not to do that, because there's no distinction right? In sitting with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, there was no time for the rich and time for the poor. But when you come to the salon right, we don't reserve the first line for people who are rich, the next person or middle income the poor, you know, just stay outside. No, we don't say that. Right? So it's the same thing with the Prophet sallallahu

00:22:04--> 00:22:31

sentimiento what gets you access with him as a man is stuck was your interest in Islam and wanting to learn not your money? So that's one of the things that happens. And even you know, if being wealthy or that does not distract you does not deprive you of heaven. At least it delays entry by it delays entry. He sets a lot he says yet hold on for a while as near a become senior to me, Mr. Young,

00:22:32--> 00:22:40

it says the poor will get to enter heaven 500 years before the rich people do is it half a day of the days

00:22:42--> 00:23:04

where these will occur is 1000 years. So half of these 500 he thinks they will get to enter heaven 500 years before the rich do. So he says In another study in Muslim he says that when I looked in heaven, I saw that most of its people are the poor boy does have a demo soon. Right? And people who are rich people of wealth are held back. Why are they held back?

00:23:06--> 00:23:06

Question.

00:23:07--> 00:23:24

Right, they are to be questioned. Everyone who has extra wealth has to you know, except if Allah allows you to enter heaven without questioning. But other other than that the poor have less money. So they slide easily right? They enter again, we're having a pass, right?

00:23:26--> 00:23:50

You don't have to stop and put money in the tool. But it's not the rich person has to stop and then Allah has to ask him where did you get your money from? He has to account for it. How did you spend it? He has to account for that. Right? So before that until until that takes place he doesn't enter and so for this is unit a great comfort for anyone who doesn't have enough.

00:23:51--> 00:24:25

Right? is gonna love this is what a lot is destined for him and her. You don't have enough now for the 2030 4050 years that you're going to spend on this earth right not having enough, you'll get to enjoy heaven for 500 years before the rich person does the rich relative right to that you're envious of right? What do they have all of this and I don't know your rich friend who has this and you don't have it and I hate to visit them because whenever I go and visit them I you notice things that they have that I don't have, I feel miserable. Well for that time that you are patient but that's that's a condition that you have to be patient.

00:24:26--> 00:24:54

And not it doesn't really work if I'm poor, and I'm discontent with a lot I'm upset with my lot in life and that this had it will not apply to you. You have to be poor. But I contend to the last panel data and whatever your destiny, that happens, right then for those 20, whatever, 50 years, maybe maximum 60 years, 500 years in heaven before the rich person ever sees the inside of heaven. There's a power law this is you know, great comfort

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

for any person who doesn't have enough and looks at what he has, you know, and feel

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

inferior because of it or unhappy because of it.

00:25:04--> 00:25:10

And there is a nice saying from which I hated him a lot that also shows the

00:25:11--> 00:25:32

that burden and also what happens to the wealthy on the Day of Judgment, right. So he said for him alone Jade is from the Tabby. He says, three people who are in your multi Amala ring three types of people on the Day of Judgment, the rich, rich person and the sick person and he will bring a slave

00:25:34--> 00:25:39

and he will ask first, the rich person Allah Mammon, aka Annie vanities is what stopped you from worshiping me.

00:25:41--> 00:25:42

So what did he say?

00:25:45--> 00:25:49

He said, You've given me too much money, and I rebelled.

00:25:50--> 00:26:00

Right? So this is the response what stopped you from my worship? He said, Are you giving me too much money occupied me and I rebelled. Holla you should be should a man that would be

00:26:02--> 00:26:12

female Okay. Then Allah subhana wa tada will bring Sulaiman Solomon's son of Deadwood Elisa number in his kingship and his power in His Majesty, right. He uses a cane.

00:26:14--> 00:26:19

And he said, and Taku Tasha Sugarland am hada were you busier or was he?

00:26:21--> 00:26:22

Is it No, he was

00:26:23--> 00:26:31

wearing a willamina shampoo and a beret. He says, his occupation. his busy schedule did not stop him from worshipping me.

00:26:33--> 00:27:13

So are you rituals today man? He says today man, are you busier or Sulaiman? Santa Rosa King is still a man. He says, that did not stop him from worshiping me. In other words, what type of excuse are you presenting to me? He comes to the sick person to the sixth person. He asked, What stopped you from worshiping me? He said, he said Do you mind My body is occupied with sickness that's what I'm worried about all the time. That's what I'm distracted because all the time. So Allah subhana wa, tada will bring a UVA a certain job and he said, I'm right in front Indian in his sickness. And he says, your sickness is greater or his, your ordeal is bigger or his He says his, he says nothing

00:27:13--> 00:27:15

stopped him from worshipping me.

00:27:17--> 00:27:28

Then the slave will come. And he said, What stopped you from worshiping? He said, Sally or baba, it says you've forgiven me people will own me, who controlled my time.

00:27:30--> 00:27:40

So Allah subhana wa, tada will bring or bring use of any sort of juice Valley center right? In his ordeal as a slave when he was in jail, he will bring him and it'll say,

00:27:41--> 00:27:45

Are you were you busy? Or was it or was he?

00:27:47--> 00:27:48

What is it today? And

00:27:50--> 00:27:59

was your servitude slavery more severe or his? He says his servitude and slavery was more severe. He says nothing stopped him from worshipping me.

00:28:02--> 00:28:11

So that these excuses to power these excuses that may we may offer a loss of power with Allah on the Day of Judgment. But even before that, these excuses that we offer now,

00:28:12--> 00:28:50

right? Why aren't you doing this? I'm too busy. You don't have anybody to come and tell you that you talk to yourself sometimes Why aren't you doing this? Why aren't you being closer to allow? Aren't you doing this? I'm too busy, too distracted, too busy, too distracted. But you know that you solve that when you compare this to the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala, who are busier and more sick, right, and experienced more deals than anything that will ever experienced and still that doesn't stop them from the worship of Allah Subhana Allah so you know that this was not an excuse that alone is going to accept right? And of course, don't say to yourself, of course these four prophets of

00:28:50--> 00:29:34

Allah and I'm not a prophet of Allah and poor me and these. Yes, Allah Allah, Allah as Odin is not asking you to be like Yusuf or are you also the man Halima Salam is not asking you to that level. But he does present them as models, right? Or not. He does present it as model. You don't have to do 100%. But you can do 25%. So if they were not busy enough, despite whatever they went through, right to worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, then we're not busy too. We're not busy too. But that is you notice that this is an excuse that we offer to convince ourselves that maybe later or maybe to escape blame. But anyway, you see what that you know, rich person had said,

00:29:36--> 00:30:00

that rich person that said, You've given me money, and I rebelled because of it. And it's true, he rebuilt because of it. But it's not true that he didn't have time. It's not true that he could not fight the influence. But he rebelled because of it. And that's the burden also of having money and not cleansing your heart and not knowing what to do with it inside. So it controls you rather than you control the to become its guardian and servant rather than money.

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

becoming your servant, you become a servant.

00:30:04--> 00:30:10

So the prophet SAW a lot he was sending them right says here about that money that this is gonna be the thing

00:30:12--> 00:30:14

that will misguide you and nothing else,

00:30:16--> 00:30:17

and nothing else.

00:30:18--> 00:30:25

And he says at the end of the heady thesis, I've left you on the white path, a clear white path

00:30:26--> 00:30:37

laid out how and how was the night and the day of that hat are like, now a clear, well lit path like that, right cannot be missed.

00:30:38--> 00:30:40

Right? You always know that it is there.

00:30:42--> 00:30:42

There is Islam.

00:30:44--> 00:30:57

Meaning that the prophets of the law he was in them before that before his death had conveyed Islam completely, to the extent that it is very clear, and no one can miss it if they want it.

00:30:58--> 00:31:14

So why do we miss it? That's the question. Why do we miss it? Then this hadith is saying that it's not you're not missing it. Because it's not clear. The path is there. It's not missing it. Because it's not clear. You're missing it because you're putting the love of the dunya. Before that.

00:31:17--> 00:31:38

You follow? The Hadith is saying, Why did he say bless you on the clear path, the white path is saying because you're not missing it because you don't know what the path is or what it requires, or how to tread and follow it. You know, it's there if you seek it, but you will miss it, you will follow another path because your love for the dunya that's the thing that's going to misguide you and take you away.

00:31:40--> 00:32:11

And here there's an ayah that you know, it should be mentioned, we should talk about it. Or Allah Subhana Allah says what literally him never under the Athena Athena sencilla hamina bow shavon akan Amina la we will have a lot of fun, we have a lot, a lot of our family who came so you can give them the news of the this man or this individual that we gave them the knowledge of our power versus meaning that he had knowledge of the truth.

00:32:13--> 00:32:18

So relate to them this story, this person had knowledge of the truth, he possessed it.

00:32:19--> 00:32:23

But Allah says instead of hamina, he cast that aside.

00:32:24--> 00:32:42

That's bow Shavasana. So as a result, they can possess him that she can take control of him and be he become became one of the misguided. And Allah says, if we had willed who had wished, we would have raised you up, we would have raised him up to the knowledge that he had. But

00:32:43--> 00:33:05

what he chose instead is that he clung to this earth he held on to this earth and followed his desire. When you go to the sea, they will tell you that this may be in reference, right, to a personality among the children of when we saw him, or he may not be an Israelite, but the story is related to them. But I'm about

00:33:07--> 00:33:13

who it is said and Alan was best. It is said that he had knowledge of Allah His greatest name.

00:33:15--> 00:33:51

So he had significant knowledge of a loss of panel data. And he was asked to make or curse the Israelites. And Allah Subhana Allah told him not to do though, not to do that, because they were God's people, but because are in compensation for wealth, right? I came promised him this and that he decided to do it. And he did that. And by that he cast off the knowledge that Allah subhanaw taala had given to him. So that is a possibility that that's the story. But other people have deceived say for instance, also this can apply to someone like Albania, Romania.

00:33:54--> 00:34:05

And the story is an interesting story, but also it's also a sad story, a really sad story. This was a person right who traveled he's an Arab right before the Prophet sallallahu Sallam just before

00:34:07--> 00:34:48

before the before he became a prophet right. And he used to travel and talk to people right in Iraq and you know, Sham and so on. So, he had knowledge that a prophet is going to be sent and he sat with them and he learned a lot and when you read his poetry, right, his poetry indicates that he has a lot of knowledge even of Akita. Right. You know, even though in the books of al Qaeda, they will say you will not be sold said this right. Which is true, which is true, right? It confirms what the Quran says, It confirms with the sin that says right, so he had knowledge of it. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in the Hadith, Canada and New Zealand, he was about to accept Islam, but he

00:34:48--> 00:34:49

was hoping

00:34:50--> 00:35:00

to be the Prophet himself. Because he knew that the Prophet is going to come he was hoping that he should be the Prophet. So he kept, you know, hoping for it going and asked

00:35:00--> 00:35:11

Hoping for and going and asking, until suddenly you learn that incumbents have a lot to send them was sent as a prophet. And he they said he became envious, why not me and him, Satan belief.

00:35:13--> 00:35:53

And that is the sad part of it. That is the sad part of it that this is a person who was new, the truth is new attorney fee and knew that Allah Subhana Allah was one had extensive knowledge about what is right and what is wrong, and was willing to follow. He was just hoping what that I want to be the Prophet I, when it wasn't him because he was envious. He was jealous, he decided not to follow it. Or it can refer also to one of the people of the book, right, who was also close to the truth. But when he noticed that it was the prophets of Allah, he was sending them who was sent, and not people that they approved, and they liked out of jealousy and envy. Also, they decided not to

00:35:53--> 00:36:24

follow him some lollipops. And so that's what he said about studies to for you to be so close to the truth. attina who is your knowledge has come to you. So it's not mysterious anymore. You have the knowledge, right? It's in your heart on your tongue is in your book, right? It's in the form, right? You can just listen to any lecture you want, knowledge is there. But the thing is that the dunia when he comes and says, fame, recognition, right money, whatever it is. And that is the thing that makes us leave it.

00:36:25--> 00:36:46

Now that it is ambiguous, that's the thing that makes us leave it and notice your fancy wilhemina is lost. He casts all this knowledge in that truth as if he is casting off skin, as if like, you know how the snake sloughs off his skin removes it entirely. That's the way he removes that knowledge and that truth completely and go somewhere else.

00:36:47--> 00:37:11

And Allah subhanho wa Taala, he says, His example is like the dog, he pants whether you chase after it or not? Meaning low, meaning that his love for the dunya right? and lack of benefit with the truth is like the dog the dog is always panting and this person doesn't benefit no matter what you do, whether you advise them or not, whether knowledge is there or not, is Love is the unit is entrenched in the heart.

00:37:12--> 00:37:26

is the example clear? Because that's how the dog is you chase after him he pants, right? You don't chase still pants, right? Which is like a cooling mechanism. I think for the dog, they say right, he has to do that all the time.

00:37:27--> 00:37:36

So whether you do this or that he's always doing it for this person, whether you give them advice or not. Whether he has this knowledge or not, it doesn't enter the heart.

00:37:37--> 00:38:00

Like Willow Adam, I don't know this story is authentic or not would be soft because he was waiting to be a prophet. He was sleeping one day right in his room and then two birds come and one bird stands at the window next to the window and one bird on top of him and they spoke to each other and the bird says the first word says Fatima. Atilla says does he understand? You said yes.

00:38:01--> 00:38:03

Then they ask him kabita

00:38:04--> 00:38:06

he says does he accept he says no.

00:38:08--> 00:38:20

Then they want to fly fly again. There will be a cousin back and he said come back come back. You know I'm a poor slave. Please. Please listen. Again. The ask the question Does he understand? So yes, he understands. He says does he accept he says no.

00:38:22--> 00:38:27

That's the sad part. That's the sad part. Really. And that's the terrifying part in fact,

00:38:29--> 00:38:50

another saying here comes from rather macgibbon until you hear about again the influence of the dunya even though you have you have knowledge you know what's right and what's wrong, but sapan I love it that love for the dunya as long as it is there can corrupt your understanding right and wrong. And this is authentic to model Mujibur by the way in elderwood

00:38:51--> 00:38:57

this is in the meanwhile, he can fit an extra fee. Well, you feel happy

00:38:59--> 00:39:01

to roll Morocco sorry, oh, can you roll a duel?

00:39:03--> 00:39:07

It says there are going to come a time. You know where they will be fitted

00:39:08--> 00:39:23

might in the future is telling them where money and wealth will be abundant. And the Quran will be available to everybody rich and poor, male female, freemen slave, everybody will have access to the Quran. Right?

00:39:25--> 00:39:28

So you should apply it on your khulumani NASA TV

00:39:29--> 00:39:29

or on

00:39:31--> 00:39:31

TV

00:39:36--> 00:39:42

than one of them is about to say how come people are not following me and I've read the Quran.

00:39:44--> 00:39:48

They're not going to follow me until I innovate for them something other than it

00:39:50--> 00:39:50

and he does.

00:39:52--> 00:39:59

So he says while the mutual continues for a Yakumo to the alpha intimate to the algo Lada so be aware of what had been innovated because what

00:40:00--> 00:40:13

has been elevated. Right fabricated is misguidance zero comes a battle Hakeem Fina shaytaan aka Dr. Hulu Kalamata under the sun it Hakeem rodya una kokanee metal healthy

00:40:14--> 00:40:34

body una tipo kennametal ha. So he says, After he said, beware of whatever hour has been innovated, he says, and I warn you about the mistake of the wise of the wise person for the shaytan can speak or can slip the word of misguidance on the tongue of the wise person, and the hypocrite can sometimes speak the truth.

00:40:35--> 00:40:42

Right? Meaning that he's saying, Don't constantly listen to the wise because sometimes the wise can make a mistake.

00:40:44--> 00:41:02

And don't think that the hypocrite or whatever the hypocrite does or says all the time is a mistake. So you do its opposite. Sometimes he can speak the truth. So the person listening to him, he says, How do I know this? That the wise person have said something wrong? You know, and then when asked if the hypocrite has said something, right, how do I know this?

00:41:03--> 00:41:16

So he says, Bella extenet mean khademi hockeyville Mustafa, he writes, and let you call up her mahadi what are you near NACA daddy gang in hula Allah. Anuradha Watanabe, he doesn't matter who?

00:41:19--> 00:41:21

He says yes, this does happen.

00:41:22--> 00:41:33

Avoid from the words of the wise person, the infamous statements, the infamous statements that thou received with what is this?

00:41:34--> 00:42:18

That is people receive it, especially the educated scholars among them receive it with What is this thing? By? So there is resistance? Right? There's a questioning of this thing doesn't seem right. This is a mistake. So if it's infamous, like that, he says, You avoid that from what he says, What is he an academic and and do not leave him? Because he may change and come back to the truth? And that's justice. So if he says a mistake, yeah, it's a mistake, and you recognize it, right? Let it go and see what other scholars say about it. Say what other Muslims say about it, you'll find out that it is true or not. But even if what he's saying is wrong, don't boycott him completely. Because

00:42:18--> 00:42:20

he may change his say.

00:42:21--> 00:42:22

And he says,

00:42:23--> 00:42:23

the same

00:42:24--> 00:42:30

thing, and accept the truth when you hear it because the truth has a light that shines through it.

00:42:31--> 00:42:43

That is, you'll be able to recognize it. It agrees with the Koran and agrees with the sooner you'll have confirmation for it. Right. But what do you want to focus on in this saying here is what the first thing that he says?

00:42:45--> 00:42:48

You have a person who has learned the Koran.

00:42:50--> 00:42:58

Right? And he says, How can people are not following me? And I've read the Quran. So does this person want

00:43:01--> 00:43:43

recognition? I want followers, right? So maybe the person did not read the Quran. Allah did not learn the Quran for Allah subhanho data or the Nia changed later was impaneled Allah knows but what happened is that the heart is not completely sincere it's not completely cleansed is not doing it for Allah subhana wa tada completely. So for older for him to be able to attract people by just exactly like people today. But if you want people if you want people to know you, what should you do? stand out and be controversial, right? see something new, big right? Right as the same push the envelope keep pushing the envelope, right? So the more that a person is going to fall out of the

00:43:43--> 00:44:17

limelight, you push the envelope more you back into light again, right? They're going to forget about you so do something outrageous, right? You're back people pay attention to you again, that's how it is that's a cycle. Right until you know you keep pushing, but they just don't care about you anymore, then you go into obscurity. But before that, keep pushing people will listen to you. So this person is saying I don't stand out everybody's learning the Quran, everybody's teaching the Quran, but no one is coming to me. And if it's something and when you elevate something, you stand up, and people start listening, being attracted to it. So again, deviating from the truth why

00:44:17--> 00:44:29

because love of the dunya and there's here also another Hadith from the prophets of the law you send them and notice also how this hadith applies to what some of what is happening today.

00:44:31--> 00:44:35

Again, another sad and alarming headies also, it says in

00:44:36--> 00:44:39

maharlika module on Korra alpha,

00:44:40--> 00:44:44

beta to alpha candidate and Islam instead of homina

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

masala Jerry besafe your honor who wishes to enter be ally you Homer olavi ship around me. I will murder me Carla Bella Rami. This was narrated by Buhari in 37. It hasn't been shown

00:45:01--> 00:45:04

He says, sort of Lord, he was sort of the thing that I fear most for you

00:45:06--> 00:45:09

is a man who had read the Quran,

00:45:10--> 00:45:12

Quran, learn the Quran

00:45:14--> 00:45:23

so that to the extent or up until when you could see the beauty on the Koran on him, and he became a champion of Islam.

00:45:24--> 00:45:34

He cast that off, and threw it behind his back, and went and attacked his neighbor with the sword and called him a polytheist, or a Catholic.

00:45:37--> 00:46:00

So I said, em, nav Allah, Prophet of Allah, who deserves that designation of ship, or co for more, the person who accused or the accuser, the person who was accused, or the accuser, he said, the accuser, that is that person who accused his neighbor of being a Muslim, deserves that title more than his neighbor.

00:46:01--> 00:46:04

So just look at the transformation.

00:46:05--> 00:46:07

And we have to believe that

00:46:08--> 00:46:14

a person who truly is sincere to Allah subhanho wa Taala, and had, you know, purified his heart,

00:46:15--> 00:46:19

and is seeking the truth for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, that's not going to be his end.

00:46:21--> 00:46:31

And a person who knows the clear path, and knows how to seek it and how to take it, right? Because sometimes, sometimes, you may have the good intention.

00:46:33--> 00:46:38

But if you follow the path to what you want to do, so you'll miss your objective.

00:46:39--> 00:47:03

So this could be what happened to this person, either that the intention was in pride, there was something mixed with it, and it was coming to the surface later, all that there was some good intention, but he did not follow the steps that will take him to the right path. Rather, there was arrogance involved. I'm not going to talk to this alum or this alum. I'm just I know what the truth is.

00:47:04--> 00:47:08

And that fitna that he went through is that what he read the Quran,

00:47:09--> 00:47:41

and he learned it. And you could see the beauty of Islam on him and he's a champion of Islam. Meaning that maybe he's making Dawa and people are praising Mashallah, he's this and that. Maybe he had memorized parts of the Quran or all of it, maybe, you know, he's helping in this and helping in that. So he's, he's doing something for Allah zone, and people are praising him. And you can see as I was, as they said, the beauty was clamped on him and his appearance and his demeanor, and his worship. But then something happens, something happens.

00:47:43--> 00:47:51

And he turns against his neighbor, and his neighbor becomes a carrier, and he goes, attacks the neighbor. And he slaughters him, and he kills them. And he thinks that is Islam.

00:47:52--> 00:47:52

Right.

00:47:54--> 00:48:14

So the transformation, right the transformation, a person who was on the right path, and then you go ahead and you destroy all of it. And the head, it is not clear, or is not explicit about the reason why this happens. We have to believe that there is a good deal of ignorance involved.

00:48:15--> 00:48:23

But that person did not learn what he needs to learn. And there's a good deal of arrogance involved, there's a lot of people there.

00:48:24--> 00:48:37

You know, to tread that path and call someone a Kappa, right, and be the only person who's doing it, and you kill that person. Without paying attention to anyone who's more knowledgeable than you. There's a great deal of arrogance involved in this clip in it.

00:48:38--> 00:48:46

And other diseases that Allah Subhana Allah knows about. So this is what happens. It's not enough for me to learn.

00:48:47--> 00:49:10

I want these eyes have learned these Hadith and learn all of this. Okay, but what effect does this have on your heart? And what is your intention behind it? And what do you want to do with it? And is it cleansing my heart or not? Otherwise, we will not going to be more knowledgeable than bellava, who had knowledge if the story's true knowledge of Allah's Greatest Name, and yet that did not help him.

00:49:13--> 00:49:15

So this is the danger

00:49:16--> 00:49:27

of that intense love for the dunya and when we say that dunya it could be money, it could be praise and recognition, it could be position, it could be women, anything that is in this dunya and belongs to it.

00:49:29--> 00:49:48

That's what could happen when we don't treat our hearts and we're not careful of how attached they are to this dunya So, we one of the questions that we need to ask ourselves all the time is this how attached is my heart to this dunya how much if this dunya is dominated or is dominating my heart?

00:49:49--> 00:49:59

And do I love Allah subhanho wa Taala more than this dunya or not? Am I willing to give it up for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala if needed or not? We have to ask ourselves this question.

00:50:01--> 00:50:36

And that's why you find that Allah subhanaw taala keeps talking about the dunya over and over and over in the Quran. So this is not something that you can just treat you think or we think today and it's going to be done. This is something that we have, it's ongoing, and we have to keep dealing with it till we meet Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we'll have more in Sharla to say about this topic. But for now, we have a lot of galantamine, I think, to conclude a little bit early today, there's a common law hierarchy for attending and for listening szczepanik along with the handshake, a shadow law a law in the South Africa
